Companies dealing with litigation often utilize outside counsel to resolve the matter at hand to ensure the business continues to run smoothly. However, sometimes the litigation gets stalled. Kelly M. Purcaro, partner and co-chair of the firm’s Litigation Group, provides valuable tips in her Corporate Compliance Insights article “If Your Suit Is Stuck, These Best Practices Can Ensure a Strong Partnership with Litigation Counsel,” discussing how companies can work with outside counsel to get the litigation back on track to result in the best possible outcome for key stakeholders.
Kelly notes that the best strategy is to view the litigation from a business perspective and map out the status while utilizing the discovery process to issue-spot for improvements and best practices the company can implement moving forward. “When facing a war, you should always define your own battlefield. In business and in litigation, your ammunition is best practices and planning,” says Purcaro.
